Xp Activation Tool

Hello everyone. I'm trying to get activation status of Windows XP via slmgr.vbs, but I didn't found this file on a remote computer. Then I had copy slmgr from my PC (which is Windows 8) to the remote computer. Then I had type icm -computername remotepc -scriptblock cscript c:\windows\system32\slmgr.vbs /dlv \\nologo and got this:

Xp Activation Tool

What I need to do? The 2 things, which I want to get is - does this copy of Windows XP is activated and what type of license it's have. As I understood, slui is GUI tool, so it's not be used remotely via PowerShell.

There was no such thing as a license management in Windows XP. That capability was introduced in Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista. As jrv says, you can't use the slui tool with XP because slui has no knowledge of Windows XP.

I converted a Windows XP-PC with above version of converter and progressed exactly and step by step as explained in this video: _to_mac.html. After having installed vmware tools and restarted the XP VM, XP is still insisting, that the hardware had significantly changed and that within 3 days it must be registered.

But I would like to mention, that the way the video shows the part about reactiviation of xp in the vm-ware, it suggests, that activation is not needed after installing vmware tools... everyone seeing this will come to this conclusion and will expect, that he does not have to reactivate the os in the vm-ware, since this is a question anyway concerning the converter isn't it? So either this is so and then I need to know, why it does not work in my vm or then this is not so, but then vmware should be interested, to make this clear in that video

If, however, the original Windows installation was in a "no activation required" form, i.e. a Volume License, it will remain so and not require activation after having been moved. Likewise, if it was an OEM license, that does not allow for moving to different hardware, Microsoft will deny activation.

Based on the fact that you're not the first poster to have a similar question... I'll agree that it's not always obvious if/when Reactivation will be required. And I've seen more than one pretty disappointed Windows customer when they found out that even if they leave their Dell in the trash, the OEM Windows license isn't, won't, and can't be moved to a Fusion Virtual Machine.

Unfortunately, determining exactly WHAT prompts reactivation is a topic all in itself. As is the cruel way this mechanism treats legitimate Windows customers, many of which simply do not understand that the OS that "Came with their computer" is only licensed to live ON THAT COMPUTER, and they need "permission" from Microsoft to swap out a hard drive or add RAM.

It is an image of OEM version. Abount two years old. Not that I'm going to use this Windows for any work, it's just for convenience of running VM instead of taking old PC out of closet. So even if I go with activation, they won't let me, because of the time since the system was purchased? How about reinstalling Windows if HDD crashed? Gee.

Your last question about enabling autologon. It doesn't matter. If the copy of Windows is currently working without asking for reactivation, you'd be fine as long as you reactiave the virtual machine quickly. But since it's and OEM copy, you'll probably have issues with the reactivation. If you can do what you need to do within the time period before the activation timer forces activation, then just use the virtual machine that way. However all the branded OEM copies of Windows I've used do not have any "grace period." So if you do run Converter again and you're not given a chance to logon, then there's not much you can do. You would need to buy (or otherwise aquire) a retail or volume license copy of Windows and use that to do a repair install. (In essence, you've bought a new license that you're going to use for the virtual machine.)

The "regular" methods provided with XP (phone and online) don't work anymore. The phone number is not valid for activation anymore (I tried the German one) and the online activation does not work either (in a quick test within a DMZ other protocols like ICMP or HTTP worked fine when I accessed an internet server).

The latest question/answer I could find here on superuser is this one: XP Activation and Dual Booting which doesn't provide an answer to my question. In addition the question asks only if it can be done in general not how (neither does the existing answer say how), and about other problems (dual boot), so I decided to post the question again as specific question just about the activation process.

The solutions can be a workaround (disabling the activation check), but for security reasons, it shouldn't contain a binary download. Preferably it also shouldn't require a network/internet connection. Although there is no way around using WinXP, I want to minimize security risks.

Calling the current MS activation number for a product still in support (e.g. for activation for Win7) and choosing "Other Products" in the voice menu. This is my preferred one since you don't have to tamper with the system. In my case (Nov 2019) I followed the link to the Microsoft Licensing Activation Centers worldwide telephone numbers.

Deleting the value of the OOBETimer key (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows NT/CurrentVersion/WPAEvents/OOBETimer) and starting the activation via command prompt: msoobe /a. This will disable the activation requirement for good, but might cause issues (although I haven't found any yet) (source)

This link just allows you to manually activate the the installation. So you select activate via phone option, then your XP box activation screen will give you a set of numbers. You enter these numbers into the site and the site gives you the response numbers to enter into the XP installation that you are needing to activate. Then you click on "next" and the activation completes.

So there is no way that this could contain malware or virus's because nothing is installed or run on the box that you are activating, unlike the other options listed here that involve running scripts to by-pass the activation process.

I am just giving my experience here; I had a box belonging to a friend of mine that somehow got into an activation loop (even though it had previously been activated for years), and I got the PC activated using the link. And I did so by following the standard Microsoft activation screens.

A wildly wrong date will break anything that uses ssl/tls, as certificates will be assumed to be either expired (if the date is in the future) or not yet valid (if the date is in the past). This apparently includes windows activation.

I just successfully activated an old copy of Windows XP I had installed using the toll free U.S. phone number listed in the activation dialog (888-571-2048), so it's possible the issue was with the German number and not phone activations in general.

As part of the call, they provided me with an online activation link, which allowed me to activate my copy online. After providing the link, I was instructed to hang up the call. I was able to enter the information from the activation dialog into the online form, and enter the resulting activation code into the activation dialog. This successfully activated my installation Windows XP.

The sticker on the pc has an activation code along with its serial number in the form 00045-617-192-xxx, and the installed windows xp got a serial in the form 76435-OEM-0011903-00xxx. There is no windows activation stuff in Applications > Accessories > System Utilities, and Windows Update would want to install the WGA thing (KB905474).

** In windows xp mode if i open my Computer there is shows other hard drive partition as well as Local disk C:\ and activation file save in virtual drive instead of real C drive in windows 7. But there is no file path option to save the activation. Its by default save on C:\documents and setting\all user\shared documents\rockwell\activation\*****

Delete the all the files that have Wtools or Wsup in the name. For example, the%Windir%\prefetch folder may contain some files that have Wtools or Wsup in the name.Note The %Windir%\prefetch folder is a hidden folder. To access the folder, type %Windir%\prefetch in the Address box, and then press ENTER.

It happens because the company uses the same duplicated disk with the same product key on all computers of the same model.

  • You might see the same product key multiple times, simply because it's stored in multiple locations or because the key was found with multiple scan methods (Registry, BIOS, WMI).

  • This tool can find your product key only if it's stored on your systems. For some license types, the product key is not stored in the Registry at all.
